This post is part of the HEALTHY ESSENTIALS® 2014 program by Johnson & Johnson Consumer Companies, Inc. and The Motherhood, who sent me a box of products and compensated me for my time. Opinions, experiences and photos shared here are all my own, and I hope you enjoy them.
This summer has turned my family into a bunch of free spirits.
The only schedule we’ve adhered to was a weekly karate class, a few soccer practices this month since it’s “fall” soccer season, and one week of camp.
The rest of the time, we’ve decided at the last moment to head to the pool or the beach or to have friends over or to go see a movie. No planning ahead, just go with the flow.
Bedtimes, meal times, even showering and getting dressed… none of that has been on a schedule.
But it’s almost time for back to school. And much as I’ve enjoyed our free spirited summer, that doesn’t work during the school year.
We have to get back into a routine. And while for the kids, that’s pretty easy to set: shower after practice, earlier bedtime, earlier wake up time, eat breakfast, brush their teeth, get dressed, brush their hair, grab their backpacks, and out the door.
But it’s not just them that needs to get into a routine: I do, too. Sometimes in the rush of getting the kids ready for bed at night or getting them out the door in the mornings, what I need to do for me gets lost in the shuffle.
Some HEALTHY ESSENTIALS® products I’m using as back of my back-to-school routine:
- AVEENO® POSITIVELY RADIANT® Skin Brightening Daily Scrub: Helps improve skin tone, texture and clarity to reveal brighter, more radiant skin. Its unique formula combines ACTIVE NATURALS® moisture-rich soy extract with microbeads to gently exfoliate while you cleanse, leaving skin soft, smooth and even looking.
- RoC® Deep Wrinkle Night Cream: Contains an exclusive combination of pure Retinol and an essential mineral complex that is clinically shown to visibly reduce even deep wrinkles after 12 weeks’ use.
- LISTERINE® HEALTHY WHITE™ GENTLE Rinse: The unique formula safely whitens teeth and is the only whitening product on the market that does not contain peroxide but includes the added benefit of fluoride to restore enamel, offering a gentler, non-irritating whitening experience while simultaneously preventing cavities.
